One of the top values in Puerto Rico

In an area where quality dining is fairly expensive, OleLelolai is the place to go. Food and service were terrific and at a price that makes you want to go back. We had a table of 4, two bottles of wine and some outstanding food for under $120. A beautiful view to go along with it.

Overall the food was great. However the service that we received was not. Our drinks were empty far before she came to check on us and the specific food instructions were not followed (no sauce, etc).

We got there about 6:30, which was perfect timing, just ahead of the crowds. The view and breeze were both delightful. Dining partner and I split 2 apps, a bruschetta and some scallops. Scallops were awesome, bruschetta had too much bread. I ordered the skirt steak mafungo in creole sauce. It was delicious. My partner ordered garlic shrimp mafungo and... More

Our family ate dinner here and really enjoyed the food and service. We were able to make our reservation via email before arriving in Puerto Rico, and all went smoothly. We ordered tapas (six dishes) to get started, and all were great. Favorites included the mussels, the scallops, and the crab stuffed arepa. The restaurant makes their own sangria, which... More

The outside terrace is spacious and overlooks the ocean. Amazingly the adjacent road doesn't contribute much noise and the atmosphere is very nice with colorful light bulbs all around. The service was friendly and the food great. Chops were superb and sangria refreshing and sweet. We didn't make a reservation but apparently got lucky.

We came here after a long day on the catamaran and were promptly seated on their great second story deck overlooking the bay. Seriously gorgeous views and you were above any traffic. Our service was very slow, even for island-time. However, our waitress was absolutely delightful. Our party had a couple of dishes that were good - like the chicken... More

Went here looking for great food outside the resort. Came across this wonderful restaurant. Its on the second floor with a good view of the ocean. Great service and good atmosphere. Food is delicious and prices are reasonable. The churrasco monfongo was amazing. Would definitely recommend!

We had our last dinner in Fajardo here. Our server was very nice. The chorizo tapa's dish was larger than all the others. The spicy potatoes were pretty tasty. Overall worth trying - if nothing else for the service and dessert.
